A Few Good Finds

I decided to do a little thrifting today and visit my favorite spots, but I didn't have much luck finding anything to blog about. But, I make this sweet pillow yesterday and I can blog about it! Right? 

I am really crazy about the Frenchee stuff right now. As Mimi Bleu at Bonjour Romance always says, "Put a little ooh-la-la in your life."  I'm trying, I'm trying.
Be sure and go visit her, she lives in Paris and has a wonderful romantic story to share with you.  You'll love her and her blog.

I bought these vintage crystal glass doorknobs from Dianne and Stephanie at Miss Minnie's Antiques.  They always find the best

I found some other things too but they have to be painted, so I'll show them to you later.  What did you find this week?

You know?? Those crystal door knobs make me want to white-wash my whole house- just so I could display them in a clear jar where they will get all the attention. Hmmmm.... I wish ... (I think the hubs would kill me if I asked to paint again- just to go BACK to white...) ;)

Yes, the roses you made inspired me!! Of course they did- they are so beautiful! Mine aren't nearly as clean and delicate looking, but I still enjoy them! You and your blog are completely wonderful... take care!

Good job on the pillows.. Door knobs are always great even if you do nothing with them but pile them up in a bowl..

Linda said...

Oh Sissie, I had to laugh here! I think I have a little more "git-r-done" stuff to do, before I go looking into any "ooh-la-las"!!!.. LOVE your pillow! ((hugs)) ~tina

Hi Sissie,
I love the knobs. I would have these through- out my home on every door if I could. I pick up old hardware whenever I see it too. Just love the stuff. I also really love the pillow you made. So pretty.

Vicki said...

Hi, Sissie,
I always enjoy seeing what you have made or what treasures you have found. I love your French pillow and the knobs are wonderful, too. Have a fun filled weekend! Vicki

OH, Sissie, not one single thing! I can't even find my glasses half the time. As soon as I get my home back in order I will catch up with you. Great finds, and I can't wait to see what you paint! I have lots of painting to do also. Lots of plans and so little time! :)
